The Yukon's three Territorial Parks are well worth the effort to reach them. Herschel Island is located off the Yukon's north coast in the Beaufort Sea.
Tombstone, the Yukon's newest park, is a gem located on the Dempster Highway, and the Fishing Branch, a new wilderness protected area located just south of Old Crow, is habitat to a wide variety of wildlife.
Kluane is the most accessible of the Yukon's three National Parks and encompasses icefields and Canada's highest peak, Mount Logan. Located above the Arctic Circle in the Northern Yukon, Vuntut andIvvavik are more remote – but just as spectacular.
These undeveloped parks were created to protect the calving grounds of the Porcupine caribou herd, as well as wetlands that provide habitat for over half a million migratory birds.
